great view for Manhattan and Hudson river in the top of Rockefeller plaza！first night in New York
this is a must see stop in New York City especially during Christmas!! they have NYC largest Christmas tree up!! the also gave ice skating!!
The night we arrived in New York on September 17, we arrived at the top of the Rockefeller Center Stone Observatory. Because according to brothers who have been to New York, the night view of Rockefeller Center's Stonetop Terrace, the two most popular viewing terraces in New York City, is better. Up to the top of the boulder, Manhattan has a better night view - the nearby Empire State Building and Chrysler Tower stand out in Manhattan's tall buildings, with lights on the top, and stand out. In addition to looking at the scenery, you can also learn about the history of the building, buy favorite souvenirs in the tourist souvenir shop on the ground floor of Rockefeller Center, or eat and shop in other stores. But most of the stores here are closing at 9 p.m., so for night owls, they can go shopping first and then climb the mountain. In addition, the flag around the sunken plaza in Rockefeller Center is also a major feature. You can find your own national flag for a group photo. If you book through the official website of Rockefeller Center, you can also choose the time ahead of time to visit, so that you can avoid the trouble of queuing up to the viewing platform.
Rockefeller Center used to be around 8 p.m., but the sky was still dark, so the view here was very beautiful. It was far from the Empire State Building, and it also had a view of Manhattan and New York. In front of the business building, there is a large sunken space, mainly a large open-air restaurant business site. The shape of the building is also relatively unique. It stretches directly into the sky in all directions. Walking into the building also has another flavor. The foreword of the door has a statue of Zeus of Greece. When you enter the space inside, you can see the pattern of Hercules on the walls and ceiling. The implication is such a big building.
From the Rockefeller Center overlooking the entire night view of Manhattan, the Empire State Building is the main view. The night scenery is really spectacular. If the Chinese people who came out in front of the tide of going abroad 30 or 40 years ago would be amazed and would not leave afterwards, but for me who often saw the night scenery of Lujiazui, Shanghai really can't find fault. The most important thing is that Shanghai people are much more enthusiastic than New Yorkers.
See the viewing platform of Rockefeller Center, glass baffle, there are still gaps between each piece, you can stretch out your hand to take pictures, but the mobile phone must be good, preferably with a rope, or finger ring, otherwise too dangerous. It didn't take long to change tickets. It was 7:30, and it just finished the daytime scenery. The sunset and the night scenery were also seen. It was very beautiful and the whole Central Park could be seen. There's a subway downstairs. It's really convenient. If there are too many people on the top floor, they can't stand at all. In fact, the 67th floor is fine.
Good view of the Empire State Building! Along the direction of the Empire State Building, we can also see the outline of the new World Trade Center. If the time goes back to 1997, 20 years ago, and the twin towers are still there, what would New York be like under the night sky? In the same light, some people see ambition, others see the affection of their children.
The Cliff Peak Observatory is located on the top floor of Rockefeller Center and is "New York's Best View". The number of visitors to the top of the cliff is not as large as that of the Empire State Building, so it's better to avoid crowding around. The viewing platform is surrounded by plexiglass, and the photographs are not affected. Standing on it, when the weather is clear, you can see the whole city and feel the most amazing metropolitan beauty in the world. You can see the grandeur of the Empire State Building in New York from a close distance. Not far away, a square green space is Central Park. Compared with the Empire State Building, each has its own merits. It is suggested to visit both places and enjoy different scenery.
Rockefeller Center, a landmark building in New York, is magnificent, tall, handsome and fashionable. The skating rink ahead is very popular. During the Christmas and New Year period, various kinds of colorful lights flashed, crowded with people, and the festival atmosphere was warm.
